I was going to start this article by listing all the divorced Real Housewives, just to show how tough it is to be on reality TV and remain married. But listing all the happily married couples would literally take less time and space. Is that because reality TV stars are generally pretty insane (and I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course)? Or is it because the strain of having cameras in one’s face 24/7 is just too much for a marriage to handle?
Its a classic chicken/egg dilemma. What comes first? The toxic mess of a marriage or Bravo cameras?
Ooooh… already a juicy cliffhanger on Real Housewives Of Orange County and courtesy of Vicki Gunvalson no less, who is desperate to prove that she belongs holding an orange.
Kelly Dodd really had no other option but to storm out of Tamra Judge‘s housewarming party after unleashing her superpower supersonic F-bombs on Vicki.
When Kelly’s voice goes to that decibel of extreme whininess I imagine that dogs everywhere go into a trance and start walking, zombie-like, towards the TV screen. Frisker – go to a new master!
What even was last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County? Certainly not Vicki Gunvalson‘s welcome back redemption tour because the very second she walks into a scene things explode. It’s because Vicki never learns!! In between chasing Kelly Dodd around a party and begging Kelly for an opportunity to talk, Vicki is simultaneously doubling-down on the accusation that Kelly does cocaine. Now she knows people who have done it with Kelly. Produce these people!
See this is the thing about Vicki: she always makes some off-the-wall accusation – who knows, maybe it is true [shrug-moji] – then immediately regrets it. Not because Vicki feels bad, but because of social repercussions. Then instead of being contrite; instead of calling Kelly on the phone to sincerely apologize, then making it publicly known that the accusation wasn’t true, Vicki just pretends it will blow over. Meanwhile Vicki will continue to insist she’s not a liar and make little comments reinforcing her original statement. As if repeating it will make it true. Then even worse, Vicki only wants to apologize to save her own faces. What face is Vicki on at this point?
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County has just begun, and it looks like there is plenty of drama. That is great news for anyone who
slept through attempted to watch the last couple of seasons. Of course, Kelly Dodd is once again at the center of all the theatrics.
At one time, the newly demoted Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly were close friends. Then Vicki and her man Steve Lodge went on a double date with Michael Dodd, who is Kelly’s ex. That breach of girl code tanked their friendship. Kelly is fighting with co-star Tamra Judge on social media. And Shannon Beador also hinted that her friendship with Kelly went downhill during the season.
You can’t keep the OG from the RHOC! Tonight Vicki Gunvalson returns for episode two of Real Housewives Of Orange County. And just in time to get in an explosive blowout with Kelly Dodd at Tamra Judge‘s housewarming party.
Kelly‘s anger begins to simmer again when she learns how the cocaine allegation Vicki made at last year’s reunion has impacted Jolie’s social life. In response Kelly sends Vicki a screaming animoji text comparing her to a pig and calling her a bitch! Which of course Tamra and Shannon Beador also see! When Vicki tries to speak with Kelly at Tamra’s party things escalate to a dramatic argument, which ends with Kelly storming out.
Say what you will about Real Housewives of Orange County, but these women put it all out there. I may be the only one who watched the premiere, but from the first moment it was made clear that these women are going to show up for work by bringing their most uncomfortable issues on camera. This is more than we can say about the women of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
At the center of the premiere episode, was all of the drama rotating throughout Gina Kirschenheiter’s life. The details about her DUI do not make her look good. Mom parties need not include roadies and getting behind the wheel. Needless to say, Gina’s had a rough go and it looks like we’ll see a lot of it. It also looks like we’ll see a lot of Shannon Beador making out and doing squats. One thing that felt off about the premiere, however, was that there was no Vicki Gunvalson. This left me feeling as though it’s truly the end of an era – I mean we didn’t even get one Woohoo at all!
Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd were enemies right from the jump. Kelly referred to Shannon’s beloved USC as the University of Spoiled Children and she was immediately on Shannon’s bad side.
It got ugly from there with plates thrown and Mrs. Roper comparisons. Then, the two of them bonded when they split from their husbands and they’ve provided fun TV (and Instagram Stories) ever since. Well, actually those Instagram Stories stopped and that’s because they’re currently on the outs.
Well, we made it through the first episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County. It was great catching up with all the ladies. Many of the cast members have had significant life changes since last season. Kelly Dodd has a new plastic surgeon boyfriend Brian Reagan–and some recent cosmetic enhancements. Tamra Judge has a new house. Gina Kirschenheiter also has a new house–and unfortunately, a new DUI. Is a bail bond an appropriate housewarming gift? Just asking!
Shannon Beador–well, she has a whole new attitude. After several seasons of divorce drama with ex David Beador, formerly bitter Shannon seems lighter–both in the weight she has worked hard to lose–and in spirit. From the looks of the season trailer, Fun Shannon has officially landed in Orange County. Shannon might be up for all sorts of merriment these days, but she thinks one of her co-stars is a bit of a downer.
